Bread for the World Sunday Offering of Letters October 13

There is enough … More than enough
On Bread for the World Sunday, we join others in offering prayers for those who suffer from hunger in our own country and abroad – and for our decision makers who can change the policies and conditions that allow hunger to persist.

Our prayers are especially urgent at this time. In the United States, one in six children faces the threat of hunger. Worldwide, nearly one in four children endures the lifelong sentence of stunting because of chronic malnutrition.
In response to these urgent needs, we join with others in urging our nation’s leaders to support measures that improve nutrition for mothers and children. Together, we can help give all children the chance to grow and thrive.
Throughout Luke’s Gospel – and especially in the feeding of the 5,000 (Luke 9:10-17) -Jesus invites us to partake of the feast of God’s abundance. Trusting that God, our creator, provides more than enough for all those in need, we rededicate ourselves to working together to make sure that all share in this abundance.
